The first church in North America dedicated to the newly glorified saint, Saint Joseph the Hesychast will be build here at the Iveron Mother of God Monastery.
“The most important calling today, the most important mission is not words, the world is tired of words. The world today needs to see examples. Thus says our Lord: 'You are the light of the world, you are the salt of the earth ... So let your light shine before men.' It is about what needs to be done. Because Christianity is life in God. ...the most important mission today is an active life. We should not speak, but be true Christianity: truth, good nature, faith, love."
- Elder Joseph of Vatopedi, a disciple of Elder Joseph Hesychast, Mount Athos
